Ralph Harold Reishel
With great sadness the family of Ralph Reishel announces his peaceful passing on Monday, March 29th with his loving family at his side.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife and soulmate of 42 years Norma (Pepper), his loving children Roxanne (Steven) Paches and Joelle (Murray) Lemay. Also left to mourn are his precious grandchildren that were the light of his life Megan, Tyler, Alexandra, and Stephanie. He also leaves behind to grieve his sister Marg Persian, sisters-in-law Audrey Reishel and Gladys Sixsmith, and many nieces and nephews and friends.
Ralph was predeceased by his parents Emmy and Paul, his brother Herb, and several brothers and sisters-in-law.
Dad was born and raised in Kenora and worked for the C.P. Rail as a conductor for 39 years before his retirement in 1986. Our memories are filled with long sun filled days at the camp where Dad loved to boat, fish, swim with his children, and entertain friends; and of the sparkle in his eyes when we were about to depart on one anticipated family vacation or another.
Dad loved to travel, from visiting family here in Canada and in England, to various tours and cruises, and his return and subsequent stories always brought smiles to our faces. Later Dad enjoyed his winters in Arizona and his summers with his children and grandchildren whom he couldn't help but spoil with his love.
Dad, we were truly blessed to have you for our father and you will always be in our hearts and lives.
Ralph, my partner, my life..... thank you.
Papa, we will miss you.
The family would like to express sincere thanks to Dr. Wehner, Dr. Lowen, Dr. Scaife and the nurses of the 3rd floor of the Lake of the Woods District Hospital for their care and compassion, and to Marty Camire for his care and kindness.
In lieu of flowers, Dad would have appreciated donations to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital CT Scanner Fund.

Ted became the Crown Attorney for the District of Thunder Bay in 1985, and Regional Director for the Northwest Region of the Ministry of the Attorney General in 1988. He retired in 1991, following a career distinguished by its impact on northern and aboriginal justice issues.
In his younger days, Ted passionately indulged in his hobbies of flying and boating, particularly in the Lake of the Woods area. He was a licensed pilot, and spent many hours flying a variety of planes from Cubs to Buccaneers. Every summer until the last was spent at the family camp on Lake of the Woods. He also published a legal handbook for Ontario Conservation Officers and two books relating to his interests in northern justice and bush flying. He was actively working on his third project in the hospital before his death.
